Solar Sun Jar DIY::Charges during the daylights up at night

Start by spray painting the inside of the jars.Frosting the jar helps diffuse the light and gives a nice glow to the entire jar(Be sure to avoid spray painting the lid of the jar. It needs to be clear in order for the solar light to work.)

Next, take apart the solar lamp. (the best one to use is the kind where the solar cell/battery pack unscrews from the rest of the lamp.) These solar lights simply unscrew from their plastic bulb. The entire solar unit is self-contained and can be used without further disassembly.glue the solar cell/battery pack to the underside of the jar’s lid.

Remove the strip of paper that prevents battery contact, close the jar, and place it outside in full sun. It will glow most of the night after charging.
